Supporting Amateur Radio Clubs

At Essex Ham, we’re keen to help grow the hobby, and key to that is working with other amateur radio clubs and groups, and sharing resources.

Here’s some of the material we’ve made available to help support the work of amateur radio clubs around the UK.

Supporting Essex Clubs

Involved with a club in Essex? We can help to promote your club’s event to the amateur radio community. Send us your events news, and we’ll help to promote your event to amateurs from across Essex and beyond. If your club’s events aren’t being featured, get in touch with Essex Ham, or find out more about how Essex Ham supports local clubs.


In The Pipeline…?

We are currently working on material relating to amateur radio progression (gaining more confidence and skills), and retention (keeping people in the hobby). In 2019, the RSGB is set to launch two schemes related to progression and retention, and we’re hopeful that some of the material we’re creating will align with the new schemes, RSGB Brickworks and RSGB Amateur Radio Discovery
